The PC will attend and actively participate in organization meetings, coalitions and associations.

The PC will also engage the community by participating in events and staffing tables at markets, town hall meetings, festivals, etc. to collect data and share educational materials.

The PC develops presentations, trainings, social media campaigns and printed educational materials to increase awareness on the need and benefits of flavored tobacco restrictions in the retail setting, updating smoking definitions in existing nonsmoking outdoor policies leading towards a tobacco endgame. The PC should have a strong public health and community organizing framework experience utilizing prevention strategies focused on addressing social norms through laws, rules and policies.
